Localization Update

Wow, you’ve really answered our call for help with translating IntenseDebate.  In just 1 week we have received 49 volunteers translating IntenseDebate into 26 languages!  And even cooler yet, Dutch, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and European Spanish translations have come in for review by your fellow Iñtërnâtiônàlizætiønër’s!

So far this has been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve had the opportunity to be involved with.  There are so many moving parts, it’s beautiful to see everyone coming together.  Several languages have drawn numerous volunteers, and our Iñtërnâtiônàlizætiønër’s are collaborating and exchanging .po files from across the world.  It’s super-cool to watch. 🙂

Here’s a sneak-peek at the French translation in action:

IDC-French

There’s still a lot that needs to be accomplished on our end before we can roll these translations out for use, but thanks to your help we’re making major progress!  Please keep the translations coming!

So far we’ve received volunteers to help translate these languages:

Arabic Hungarian European Portuguese
Bahasa Indonesia Italian Russian
Danish Japanese Slovak
Dutch Korean Slovene
Egyptian Arabic Lithuanian European Spanish
Filipino Malay Latin American Spanish
French Norwegian Swedish
German Persian Turkish
Greek Brazilian Portuguese

Don’t see your language? Give us a hand!
If you’re interested in getting involved, now is the perfect time! Please email us at labs@intensedebate.com for information. Ideally we’d like to have at least two Iñtërnâtiônàlizætiønër’s working together for each translation.  Thanks!

  26. Yep. Some of our translators are working in groups of 5+. It's very cool to see. Although some of our translators are working on their own. We'd love to find them some partners.
